Call of Duty: Ghosts Devastation
Call of Duty: Ghosts gets its second instalment of DLC on PS3 and PS4 with the 'Devastation' map pack.
DLC price: $14.99/£11.59
Season Pass: $49.99/£40
The Call of Duty: Ghosts Season Pass, which will get you all four of the planned map packs is worth a purchase if you plan on playing all that this shooter has to offer, however if you’re not a die-hard fan of the series then you may just want to consider purchasing them separately according to what takes your fancy.
The downloadable content includes:
4 new multiplayer maps
“Situated on a massive excavation vehicle, Behemoth is a narrow multi-level map, giving players flanking opportunities with danger around every corner. Complete the map’s Field Order and take control of an attack helicopter able to rain down destruction from above with devastating grenade launchers.”
“A mountaintop Mayan ruin overrun by the jungle, Ruins’ skyline is dominated by an ominous volcano on the brink of eruption. This map blends the verticality of a dominant temple with tight subterranean sections.”
Yes. You can play as the Predator.
Unearthed (Location Classified)
“Inspired by Dome, the fan-favorite map from Call of Duty®: Modern Warfare® 3, Unearthed drops players in the heart of an alien dig site. This small map asks players to navigate through Cryptid artifacts, a mix of high-tech HAZMAT facilities, scientific equipment and vehicles. Players skilled enough to complete Unearthed’s unique Field Order will be able to unleash three Cryptid alien creatures, delivering an explosive end to their foes.”
Collision (New York)
“The mangled remains of cargo ship crashed into a New York bridge, ripe with burnt out vehicles and shipping containers strewn across the deck, this map provides the ideal theatre for close-quarters combat. Unlock the map’s unique Killstreak by completing the Field Order, and use the full arsenal of an A-10 Warthog aircraft to strafe the full length of the map.”
The SMG/AR hybrid, the ‘Ripper’.
“This unique 2-in-1 weapon has the ability to switch from SMG to AR and back again on the fly in the midst of battle, at the touch of a button, giving maximum flexibility to adjust to a variety of map types and tactics.”
Extinction also returns with Episode 2: Mayday.
“In Episode 2: Mayday, the Quick Reaction Force team is sent in to investigate a high-tech ghost ship adrift in the South Pacific. To deal with the insidious wall-crawling “Seeder” and skyscraper-sized monstrosity known as the “Kraken,” your team will need new tactics and new weapons.” – callofduty.com
My personal rating for this map pack comes from this DLC’s fun factor; the game gets you as close to playing as the Predator as possible, and the mix of small and medium maps which are surprisingly fun to play.
The content was available first on Xbox and is now available for PlayStation users.
